Friday night we enjoyed a lovely meal in one of the restaurants in the Casino then had a small flutter on the pokies before we retired to watch some more of the Olympics, I love the Rhythmic Gymnastics.
The next morning we spent a good part of the day roaming around South Bank, then I left my husband in the hotel room with his book whilst I explored the Queen Street Mall, so many beautiful things to look at, okay I may have purchased some items as there was some great bargains going on. I do know I had more luggage when I left the hotel than when I arrived...lol
Saturday we had dinner at Black Jacks which was buffet style and we finished off again in the Casino for a couple of hours spending my winnings from the night before. We hadn't been back to the room for long and my husband said he didn't feel well and wondered if it was something that he had eat. So the second night was spent listening to my poor husband make some very inhumane noises whilst he was in the bathroom, sorry to gross you out. Thinking it was food poisoning were had intended to ring them up during the week but as it turned out it wasn't as I woke up in the wee hours of Tuesday morning with all the same symptoms, yep definitely wasn't food poisoning. Whatever it was it has taken us a good several days to come back to the land of the living and we are both still not feeling a 100% . Usually you hear people talking about these stomach viruses when their kids are little and it working itself through the house, we have been lucky enough to never had one of those and still we were lucky enough that out kids did not pick it up from us, don't think I would have liked to have dealt with myself and them, although they are big enough and ugly enough to look after themselves. My DD had the day of anyway and she was a fantastic nurse!!!
Anyway I thought I would share a couple of challenges I did over at Colorful Creations before I went away, it seems ages since I have posted a project. I participated in Tabitha's Twisted Blue Prints #7 and Milagros Use Your Stash Challeges. If you would like to check these out I have linked them and Im sure the girls would love for you to check their work out.
Twisted Blue Prints #7
I had some fun doing this challenge and Im really trying to use some of my older products. Such as the older K and Company papers, velvet flowers from Imaginesce and even some old stickers from Sticker Studio.
I machine stitched around the edges of the paper and used some sticker words for my journalling.
Use Your Stash
Again another fun challenge to really get in and use your stash, again I challenged myself to use older products from my stash with only a couple of newbies. The only thing I struggled on, was getting some lace onto my page after I finished it. In the end I was able to use some around the picture.
I used some really old Crate Paper from the "Samantha Collection" along with a couple of die cuts & stickers from "Pretty Party" range. Other stickers are from K & Company and Simple Stories, Blooms are Dusty Attic and Prima, Heidi Swap Rhinestones and I have colour the ribbon using my Tattered Angels mists.
Sorry for the long winded post, for those that did take the time to read...lol and if you didn't that's okay as well. Hope everyone has had a great week and is looking forward to a nice break over the weekend. Again thank you to those that stop by and leave me your lovely comments, its always nice to know that your work is appreciated.
Bye for now
